    Nope, I'm saying they all are ruthless, disgusting people who all should be criticized. Just look at my track record, I've criticized city/psg as much as anyone. What's strange is the argument that there are worse owners. Waltons are just as bad any foreign owner.

    They only have better owners because they're American. Others two peas in a pod.

    None of the Spurs players in their history get in that team.

    I'm not in the mood. But as Cassano wrote. No Spurs player would make it in an all time eleven. I would replace Toure with King Adams in his prime though!

    Lets not discredit Spurs entirely, though they've been down there in the relegation battle for a couple of seasons in the past, their consistency in top flight football should be given enough to be a top ten team in England. No shame in saying that.

    Arsenal once again finish ahead of Spurs this season. St.Totteringham's day will be on Saturday, April 25 when the Gunner beat the Spuds in their own barn.

    With the Audi Cup victory, Poch now has a trophy. Since the knock on him is that he doesn't win and possesses NO trophies, I assume this criticism, which I have no doubt has always been offered in good faith from knowledgeable people and has in no way ever been flung about in an arbitrary and overly simplistic way, will now be removed from discussion. Right?

    Seems pretty simple to me -- man with no trophy, obtains trophy. So end of story, right? Is he a good manager now? I mean I had my personal doubts over the past few years because even though I saw the team win under him, none of those wins came with a nice silver or gold or wood trinket so I was never really sure, you know? But now that he has physical proof of victory that he can put on his mantle or in a nice glass case, well now I know for sure that he's good. No need to worry about trophy-less achievements like staying in the top four or advancing in the CL. This season's already a success. Trophy obtained. Let's hit cruise control and bask in all the glory of having something we can carry to parties.

    We have clinched more league titles at Sh*te Hart Lane than Sp*rs which is pretty fun.

    Well, Ajacied did ask for entertainment, this line-up should provide that at both ends :) And it's definitely a side to be managed by a usual adventurous Spurs manager like Ardiles than a typical boring boring Arsenal manager like Graham.

    And I congratulate you on eliciting the 'Glasgow Celtic, 1967' style-answer you evidently craved.

    If you want to win, pick Wenger or any Arsenal manager, Arsenal
    have won titles. If you don’t, pick a Spurs manager. No Spurs player except Sol Campbell and Pat Jennings who both have played for Arsenal too come close to the starting 11 or even bench in a combined team.

    They've won at it at small club stadiums like Anfield and Old Trafford as well!

    So was Jock Stein. Kenny Dalglish's background is Protestant too.
